    An amazing trip to see the Orangutans at Semenggoh. It was explained to us that it is no longer used for rehab as the group located there are successfully breeding. Animals for rehab are now sent to a different location. When we visited in June there were around 50 people at the morning viewing. Our first sighting was where we were dropped by the site transport. We saw a nest in a nearby tree and suddenly an arm appeared out of the nest. We were told that there are 3 males and we saw the number 1 and 3 male during our visit. There were also 3 females, 2 five year olds and a young ape not yet named as they do not yet know the sex.
    There are multiple park rangers at the viewing area and as well as controlling safety they were also giving us a lot of info. Our group were asked to more as the animals moved around the area as they can climb above the viewing area. There was no restriction on talking in bags and no charge for cameras. Since the animals here are now semi wild there is no guarantee they will come to the viewing area especially if it is fruiting season as they do not need the fruit put out by the rangers. Later in our Borneo trip we visited Sepilok rehab centre but far preferred our visit to Semenggoh.

    Baku is a beautiful park with plenty of wildlife. We saw Silver Leaf monkeys, Proboscis Monkeys, Long Tail Macaque Monkeys, Flying Lemur, Bearded Pig plus assortment of crabs, lizards etc. We did a day trip from Kuching so 30-45 mins via road and 30 mins via boat. The problem for us was it was a very hot and humid day and the day trip people do 2 walks which are 10:30 - 12:00 and 12:30 - 14:00. So we were walking in the hottest part of the day. Given the choice again I would suggest it is better to overnight in Baku so you can walk when it is cooler as well as doing a night walk. We were glad that we saw Baku and the different types of eco systems that exist there but it was a very hot trek.

    Beautiful setting and reconstructed longhouses but not all have staff to explain the nuances of the houses. There are placards with QR codes but I didn’t want to spend my battery so signs with text would have been much more preferred!! The 45-minute dance performance at the end was a highlight. Beautiful costumes and music. The ticket is quite expensive but slightly cheaper if bought online.

    There is also a poor, whelping scruffy, medium terrier milling around. Please someone feed it!! And eventually spay. Shame on the site management for not caring for this poor pup.

    Well worth a visit - at both nightime and in the day.

    Feels very safe, no pressure re boat trips or restaurants.

    Free light show at 8:30 and 9:30 nightly.

    Lots of photo opportunities

    Shame about some of the rubbish in the river but they do try to clean it up.

    worth a visit.

    As a crazy cat lady as soon as I read about this I knew I had to go. Located on the lobby floor of the Kuching North City Hall about 10kms from the waterfront/city centre, I spent around 2 hours there. It is comprised of 4 galleries with over 4000 items dedicated to all things feline. The first gallery has several taxidermy specimens, these looked scruffy and tired (and were vaguely disturbing) but nonetheless it was good to see the various species of the area. The rest of the exhibition contained sculptures, artworks and even fashion dedicated to our feline friends. There is a cafeteria in the lobby selling hot food, drinks and snacks.

    For me, getting to the longhouse was the best part. Myself and a fellow traveller hired a driver/guide to do a day tour including Semenggoh Nature Reserve and two long houses. Annah Rais was interesting to see, people seemed friendly considering the volume of tourists they must normally see (tourism way down because of COVID, few weeks before lockdown). The drive to Annah Rais was beautiful, the highlight of the day. We made many stops to explore and take photos along the way.

    the bridge is in a S shape to represent Sarawak ? And the bride tower top are shaped like hornbill representing the local birds. This bridge allow people to cross over to the Astana, Dewan and the White Rajah Castle.

    Being very interested in wildlife of all description we opted to visit the Wetlands Park once early morning and then in the evening.
    Both trips were enjoyable and interesting for different reasons,
    in the morning we saw the Irrawady snub nosed dolphins and a
    wonderful specimen of crocodile and in the eveing we were once againl lucky enough to see the dolphins and the proboscis
    monkeys. Highly enjoyable

    Getting a free bus to the beach in Kuching was most welcome, at the moment a free hydrogen bus is being trialed so hop on and enjoy the trip even free wi-fi, takes an hour from the Waterfront going past the cat museum on it's way. Though take note no stops on the way or return. There are numerous snack bars and even a karaoke when you arrive at central. This is the venue also of the Cultural village and Rain forest festival. Beautiful scenary and friendly locals, can't be bad hey :)

Its a very healing hike for nature lover and its a little bit tough tho,theres a little bit of mosquitoes and red ants bites.make sure to wear a long sleeve shirt and pants.but it was a good exercise.we found "periuk kera",and a big durian fell out from the tree,be careful with your head and we even found a crab at the top of the mountain!😍btw,Make sure to bring a lots of water and some food to enjoy the view up there while eatingg.

    Easy to get to being to only a 30 minute walk from the Waterfront and situated in a nice suburban area Jalan Song, the park is tidy compact and well organized. Two parts to the park , one the introduction to the other states in Malaysia and the other Chinese Tea Pavilion, and zig zag bridge overlooking the large pond. The pond is full of huge Koi Carp and other colorful fish. Around the park is a walk way /jogging track.

    It's not difficult to locate this gem. We did something different for vacation. Water play and relaxing in the hot springs. It was abit slippery when we were in the water and needed alot of strength to balance ourselves. Just be extra careful.
